http://biz.yahoo.com/iw/070301/0221835.html Most of that is due to Tuesday, when over 18 million contracts traded hands. That blows past the old single day trading record by over 15%. Crazy! Just when I thought the options markets had to finally stop growing. But I guess I was crazy. Looks like these things are destined to keep growing at 20-30% year over year. Must be all the hedge funds that keep diving into the derivatives mix.
